Minnesota at Michigan - Football Highlights

(AP) Denard Robinson threw two touchdown passes and ran for a TD to lead No. 19 Michigan in a 58-0 win over Minnesota. The Wolverines (5-0, 1-0 Big Ten) had their most lopsided win since beating Indiana by the same score in 2000. Vincent Smith scored on a run, pass and catch to help Michigan lead 38-0 at halftime. Robinson was 15 of 19 for 169 yards and didn’t throw an interception for the first time since the opener and had a season-low six rushing attempts for 51 yards. He was taken out in the third quarter. Freshman Max Shortell made his first start for the Gophers (1-4, 0-0) in place of MarQueis Gray, who missed the game with an injured toe on his left foot.
